Federal Courthouse Offers Court Art Show

The Thurgood Marshall Court House, home of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, is marking the court’s 225th anniversary with a number of events, including an art show featuring illustrations by the artists who produced our book The Illustrated Courtroom. The show, which runs through May 4 at the courthouse, 40 Foley Square in downtown Manhattan, includes illustrations from many famous trials — and infamous defendants — over the years: Imelda Marcos, Leona Helmsley, Bernie Madoff and more, along with more art from various proceedings that brought other boldfaced names to federal court, including Jackie Onassis, when she sued to keep the paparazzi away. The art show is open during normal courthouse hours.
